Become aware of what a database engine is, what exactly are the pros of the InnoDB engine and why it is gaining a lot of worldwide popularity.
InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by famous PHP-driven web applications like Magento and Joomla™ v3. It’s excellent for scalable apps, since it performs incredibly well when managing large volumes of data. Instead of locking the entire table to enter new information into a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can perform much more tasks for the same length of time. What’s more, InnoDB offers a much better database failure recovery and supports database transactions and foreign keys – a set of rules that indicate how data inserts and modifications should be handled. If a given task has not been fully completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. In this way, the database content will be preserved intact and won’t be partially mixed with newly imported content.
InnoDB in Shared Web Hosting
InnoDB is available with all our Linux shared web hosting
by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you’ll be able to install and run any open-source script-powered web application that needs the MySQL database engine without any difficulties once you open your shared web hosting account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a particular database during the app installation process, no matter if you take advantage of our single-click installation tool or create the MySQL database and activate the application manually, as long as the app requires it instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We will keep daily MySQL database backups, so you can be sure that you will never lose any data in case you erase a database unintentionally or you overwrite some important info – you just need to contact us and we will restore your content back to normal.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services
come with InnoDB and you’ll be able to get the most out of all the options offered by this MySQL storage engine with any script-powered web application that needs it. InnoDB is among the engines that are available on our cloud website hosting platform, so the one that will be selected depends on the requirements of the given app. You will not need to do anything manually to activate InnoDB, because it will be set as the default engine when you install an app – whether manually or using our single-click application installer. To be on the safe side, we will make regular MySQL database backups, so if anything goes wrong after some update or if you erase some data unintentionally, we’ll be able to restore your database the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS Hosting
All VPS hosting services
that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with InnoDB pre-installed, so you’ll be able to take advantage of any PHP-driven web app that requires this MySQL database engine without needing to install anything manually. You can choose Hepsia on the VPS configuration page and your brand new server will be up and running within one hour, so you can log in and begin building your websites straight away. Once you create a brand-new database and begin the app activation process, our system will set the engine for this MySQL database automatically. Thus, you can make use of various apps at the same time without changing anything on the Virtual Private Server. You can create a WordPress-based weblog that makes use of MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento Internet shop that uses InnoDB, for example.
InnoDB in Dedicated Web Hosting
Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the options which you can select on the order form when you buy a dedicated server
from our company. Since this is the most powerful kind of web hosting, it is very likely that you’ll manage very popular sites that will draw many individuals, and since InnoDB is one of the best choices for such Internet sites, we’ll activate it along with all the other software applications that come with a Hepsia-equipped server. When you set up a new database in your dedicated server account, there won’t be any activated MySQL storage engine until you begin installing a PHP script, whether manually via your browser or using the automatic script installer tool that is included in the hosting Control Panel. The required engine will be automatically detected and will be assigned to the database in question, so you can run scripts that require InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without the need to deal with any difficulty.
